Formal Events

The College provides opportunities for special occasions at which distinguished external speakers or former Collegians join us. Formal dinners are organised by the College on 7-8 occasions per year (Collegians are required to attend all dinners) and allow Collegians to share a formal meal and listen to a guest speaker. Recent speakers at Formal Dinners have included astronmer Professor Fred Watson, The Hon John Winston Howard OM, AC, SSI,  Dr Sam Prince and Deputy Opposition Leader in NSW, The Hon. Linda Burney.

Representative from various organisations are selectively invited to give seminars to support residents. The UNSW Counselling service has run seminars to discuss strategies for good mental health, especially in the University context. New College also selectively invites industry groups to provide career advice to Collegians.
